in louisiana, the governor, bobby jindall, staunch romney supporterch these remarks, are categorically untrue. >> jindall, as conservative as they get weft have got to stop dividing the american voters. if we are going to be a competitive party and when elections on the national stage, and fight for principles we need two messages, one we are fighting for 100% of the votes. and second, our policies, benefit every american who wants to pursue the american dream. a lot of infighting between republicans. it is reminiscent, comments, about, the 47% tape, i'm confused as to how contraception, health care or college loans are racial issues and how they're, they're gifts to people. as opposed to tools to help people live a better or healthier life. >> you have to think this, this phone call with some of the top donors. here he was, they gave basically $900 million. sure they had some questions and were demanding some answers. because he didn't expect to raise $500 million. there he was raising $900 million. they're look what happened. you were telling us one thing. it didn't pan out. to be that way
. hilary, you just heard the governor of louisiana, bobby jindal, he's very critical of mitt romney, the campaign he ran. what did you make of that? >> well, i think there's just a whole lot of distancing going on. pretty typical after a losing campaign. i thought, you know, governor jindal spoke well about some of the mistakes republicans have made. a little bit of a mixed message. i think this was a values election, not the demographic election that some people like governor jindal and mitt romney have been talking about. so i think he needs to be clearer about those values. he did say we ought to not be protecting tax cuts -- you know, tax policies for the wealthy. i think the challenge for somebody like governor jindal who just is sort of sitting back and criticizing now is to take on republicans that are relevant. because mitt romney's no longer relevant. go to john boehner, go to mitch mcconnell and say let's promote these policies that help poor people that help the middle class that promote jobs. that's what the president's been trying to do. that's what he's calling for in
